's before it is already providing benefits to people here in the state of maine. it is covered for a gentleman who is 23 years old, he also was born with a tumor in his brain -- noncancerous, but he probably could not get help for the rest of his life, except for the rules of the affordable care act. so i think it is an important step forward. it does not cut medicare benefits. he relocates the money into the medicare system. the aarp, right down there on the screen has confirmed that. the next issue is cost. and the affordable care act actually have some pilot programs, several of which are right here in the state of cynthia maine. i think it's very important. >> moderator: do you disa
